On Saturday morning the group "had their first view of a hydroplane coming along the water from Leven". A sail on Largo Bay and an evening concert on the beach followed. Sunday morning saw a parade to the United Free Church in Upper Largo, while Monday was filled with more sailing, bathing and watching the hydroplane. That evening the boys "were allowed to go out to Leven to witness the hydroplanes manoeuvring". Later in the week there were five-a-side football competitions and a march to Elie, from where they took a sail to North Berwick and round the Bass Rock.
That the camp coincided with the visit of the Royal Flying Corps hydroplanes, which were undertaking exercises in the area throughout the summer months and had a temporary base at Leven, must have been thrilling. The images below show the hydroplane at Elie (upper image from 'The Harbours of Elie Bay - A History by Rennie) and at Leven (lower image from 'Bygone Leven' by Eunson). A 200-feet long tent was required on the links at Leven to house the machines and thirty six seamen as well as several petty officers and mechanics were stationed there. Despite attempts to make the base permanent, the three aircraft (a Short biplane, a Borrell monoplane and a Maurice Farman) and a were moved to Port Laing at the end of August and the Leven station was dismantled.
